I Am on Sale

Hem Guragai

Sale! sale! sale…!
Human on sale
Cheaper than Chirang cardamoms
I am on sale!

Cheaper than Sarbhang oranges
As cheap as Bumthang potatoes
Under the sun-and-moon sign
I am on sale!

In rat trap between Scylla and Charybdis
Wounded my Achilles’ heels,
I can’t walk the talk anymore;
I am now on sale!
